DAY 1:
Creating Community Solutions Post Sandy Hook…Engaging Youth and Families, Mental Health, Law Enforcement and Schools

Join us for our Special Topics Conference: Creating Community Solutions Post Sandy Hook. This theme highlights our need to rebuild our mental health system in the aftermath of Sandy Hook. The recent tragedies all have a common denominator of involving people who were known in their communities, but who were also isolated and without support. We want to change our outcomes by creating conversations on ways to make our schools and our communities safer for children and for everyone. We will do this through sessions on prevention of bullying, research on violence, and many other topics listed below. We believe there is a sense of urgency to this topic- the Time is Now to have this conversation, and to move NC forward through policy and practice changes to result in healthier children, families, and communities.

Topics Include:
• Mental Illness, Violence and Firearms Laws
• School Rules, Suspensions and Expulsions
• Transition Age Issues
• Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS)
• Youth Suicide
• Bullying
• Effects of Sandy Hook and how the community has come together in tragedy
• Ask the Psychiatrist
• Understanding Mental Illness in Youth
• AND MUCH MORE!
